Beyond my understanding, structural racism
By Ileana María Ponce-Gonzalez
Hate crime during the COVID-19 pandemic
8 people died in March 2021
6/8 were Asian- American women,
maybe migrants or families arrived as refugees
Another Mass Femicide
While killer’s motive justified as the White guy “has a bad day” by an official in Georgia.
Structural racism, double standards
Demonstrating compassion for a white killer
Justify the cause by a mental condition
Among white killers is common
Then why they buy and own a gun…
While we should be in solidarity for the pandemic
Some are dedicated to hate
8 people part of 8 precious families were killed
As if the current violence against them is not enough
Due to the criminalization of Asians for COVID-19
From a former US president
7,314 criminal hate crime incidents reported in 2019 by the FBI
Beyond my understanding structural racism
If people of color were the killer
Everyone by now will know the name and motive.
Beyond my understanding, structural racism.
